    #12276 ESS - Facilitated IEP Training

    Audience:

    • Administrators
    • Psychologists
    • Special Education Teachers

    Do you participate in IEP meetings? Are they sometimes contentious? Are IEP team members confused about their roles? Do IEP meetings seem disorganized and unproductive? If so, the Arizona Department of Education/Dispute Resolution Unit has a training for you. IEP Facilitation is a student-focused process in which a trained facilitator assists the IEP team in developing an IEP that provides a free appropriate public education (FAPE) to the student. The Dispute Resolution Unit believes there are three components needed to facilitate a successful IEP meeting: standardized meeting practices, knowledge of the IEP process, and the use of meeting management skills that aid in minimizing conflict and maximizing collaboration. This training will cover all three areas and more!
